Custom Java classes
There are a lot of places where JasperReports allows to use custom Java classes - fields, variables, parameters, expressions, etc. We applied the new approach for loading of required classes, you never face the ClassNotFound issue during design time. Classpath preferences might be updated at any time and chages will be dynamicly applied.
